IF YOU were one of many south east Queenslanders getting set for their first round of AFL, then you can hang the boots up for another week.
AFL Queensland has issued a statement to all of its players calling off all matches this weekend.
"This decision was not taken lightly, as we fully understand players are keen to get on the field for Round 1," the statement read.
"The safety and welfare of participants and volunteers is always paramount to any decision we make.

"Based on the warnings from the weather bureau, we have genuine safety concerns of participants and volunteers being on the roads during this period.
"The strong advice from our turf management expert is that allowing games to go ahead this weekend on soft/wet surfaces will cause damage, which will most likely impact on the quality of the grounds for the remainder of the season."
They're not the only sports organisation pulling the pin on the weekend's matches after Football Brisbane issued a similar statement via social media.
Queensland Rugby League is yet to make an announcement.
